No matter if you work online or in an office, the interface with which you control your PC is of paramount importance, both when it comes to overall productivity, but also including your daily comfort.

The same principles apply even if you don’t use a PC for work, but dabble daily in browsing the internet and playing games.

Both of the consumer types mentioned above will benefit greatly from using a mouse that enables multitasking, but another important category includes people that run high-end gaming systems.

These systems will usually have a good mechanical keyboard that has a greatly reduced latency when it comes to inputs and provide more tactile feedback to the user.

Besides this, a good gaming rig will also feature a capable high-quality monitor to show off the gaming rigs’ capabilities.

In the latter case, accuracy, speed, and comfort become even more important, as every split second can be a matter of virtual life-and-death.

Indiferent of which of these categories apply to you, or which exact mix of them you use frequently, having a versatile and multitasking-capable mouse is of paramount importance.

How we chose the best mouse for multitasking

Our team of expert testers, with a combined experience of 15 years, has tackled a variety of testing tasks for any device you could imagine.

Their experience comes into play as a very important element when choosing the products we described in this guide, and a large variety of factors have been taken into consideration.

The options that have been chosen offer great quality and cover the entire spectrum of price ranges, thus enabling everybody to find something that fits their needs both financially and otherwise.

The MX Master 3 Advanced is one of the best mice on the market when it comes to multitasking, allowing you to easily use the set of buttons and scrolls to multitask on your PC.

This mouse works amazingly well both in a work environment, with lots of applications and documents opened simultaneously, but also performs very well in the gaming department.

What makes it stand out from the crowd besides its ergonomic design, is the fact that every button present on the mouse can be customized to fit your needs from the mouse’s software.

How we test, review and rate?

We have worked for the past 6 months on building a new review system on how we produce content. Using it, we have subsequently redone most of our articles to provide actual hands-on expertise on the guides we made.

For more details you can read how we test, review, and rate at WindowsReport.

The upper scroll wheel allows incredibly precise and fast scrolling, which uses electromagnetic technology to achieve this result.

It can be connected to up to three devices at the same time, and the transition between them is performed seamlessly, while the powerful 4000DPI sensor ensures precise movements.

To round this device up perfectly, the mouse can be used both with a cable and without, by the means of the USB-C rechargeable port.

  • 4 customizable buttons
  • USB 2.0 charging
  • Very fast scrolling speed
  • Can be connected to up to 3 devices
  • Wireless USB receiver fully compatible with Windows and macOS
  • The device switch button can be found on the underside of the mouse, which can be ticky to reach repeatedly

The Logitech MX Master is our next top pick when discussing mice capable of multi-tasking, and as you might have noticed already, it is the previous release of the model we chose in the 1st place.

These positions were chosen for a very good reason, with the MX Master series being some of the most appreciated mouses ever released.

Like the MX Master 3 Advanced, the MX Master is built with two scroll wheels – one at the top which allows incredibly fast scrolling speeds, and one next to the thumb area.

Added to this, the mouse also has 4 fully-customizable buttons, one at the top, two on the side (next to the thumb scroll), and one on the thumb resting place.

All these elements combined with easy-to-use software that allows you to customize the actions each of these buttons performs, the MX Master is fully deserving of the name of master when it comes to multitasking.

The G903 LIGHTSPEED from Logitech is our top pick when it comes to multitasking mice that are designed for gaming, offering you versatility, and an amazing futuristic design.

To ensure that you don’t have to stop your gaming session to plug the charger in, the mouse comes with the Powerplay wireless charging feature included, but you will have to buy the Powerplay charging system separately.

With an average response rate of 1ms, this device works perfectly for eSports, as virtually no lag is present.

The Hero 25K sensor mounted on this device can be upgraded completely free from the G Hub application, offering a 1:1 tracking, 400+ ips, and a maximum of 25.600 DPI.

This comfortable and useful mouse, even if it doesn’t look futuristic like the previously-mentioned models, provides some great features, and the price is acceptable in comparison.

Offering you access to customizable buttons, the same fast scrolling feature found in the MX Master options, and also a 4000DPI capability makes the MX Anywhere a worthy opponent to any other option.

The ultra-soft silicone side-grips ensure amazing comfort, the compact design makes it portable and easy to blend into any environment, and it also comes with USB-C quick charging, which ensures that a 1-minute charge makes it usable for 3 hours.

It also features a Hero 25K sensor which can be updated by using the same G Hub application, reaching 400+ ips, and allowing you to customize the DPI level, with a max value of 25.600.
